the isme journal infographic - march 2013
The Swiss federal office of health accepted a new "counting cells" method:
Determining the total cell count and rations of high and low nucleic acid content in freshwater using flow cytometry.
After more than a hundred years of heterotrophic plate counting (HPC) in drinking water microbiology, Switzerland - as the first country in the world, has accepted flow cytometric total cell counts as an official method for assessing the general microbiological quality of drinking water. Also the low nucleic acid / high nucleic acid (LNA/HNA content cells) are very useful in tracing regrowth in drinking water distribution systems.

the isme journal
The ISME Journal, launched in May 2007, is a cooperative effort between ISME and Nature Publishing Group (NPG) and joins NPG's stable of highly respected journals. The ISME Journal is THE multidiscipinary journal in Microbial Ecology.
Please take a look at some of our featured articles online.
The ISME Journal seeks to promote diverse and intergrated areas of microbial ecology spanning the breath of microbial life, including bacteria, archaea, microbial eukaryotes, and virsuses. Contributions of broad biological interest and impact are especially encouraged. Topics or particular interest within the journals's scope inlcude those listed below: I: Microbial population and community ecology
II: Microbe-microbe and microbe-host interactions
III: Evolutionary genetics
IV: Integrated genomics and post-genomics approaches in microbial ecology
V: Microbial engineering
VI: Geomicrobiology and microbial contributions to geochemical cycles
VII: Microbial ecology and functional diversity of natural habitats
